  • The Journey Chant

    griffin - - Inspirational Art and Fiction

    Post

    Thank you for putting some of our content out in your material, please be sure to include a reference as to where the chant can be found in its original form in any material that it is displayed with in. A simple sentence giving credit to the game and a link to Shard Studios available at Shard Studios P.O. Box 170144 Austin TX. 78717 or some similar act would be fantastic and greatly appreciated. That way those who are interested in it may know where to find other fiction which they may also enj…

  • Medical Alchemy

    griffin - - Basic Compendium Discussion

    Post

    This is a most excellent question and I will say that you are on the right track. Medical Alchemy can indeed be used as a complementary skill to dress wound and or surgery, in that the substances the healer will be creating can affect the Dice the Healer is able to use when attempting to use Dress Wound skills. I will go into detail on the details of what would be required in order to use it effectively. The exact way will be described below. The first thing to consider is whether the character …

  • Dardunah Desserts?

    griffin - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    The world of Dardunah has many of the same things you would find here on earth specifically including the rare delicacies which are found in other cultures other than western nations. In my own game I like to combine aspects of different fruit and vegetables found upon the planet earth to fill in the gaps when I wish to introduce the players to unique role play scenes. One way to do this is in your own mind while another way is to keep a list of a variety of fruit, colors and vegetables and comb…

  • Tell me some Campaign Stories

    I can say that the hunger you feel will be satisfied in the up and coming World Guide which has fantastic stories and fiction explaining many of the everyday events upon the world of the false dawn. It will even contain fiction from the perspective of different nations explaining how they feel and see the other nations of the world, not to mention give insight about how trade is accomplished.... In time we will be presenting short run adventures which are similar to mini modules for our devoted …

  • Fish in Dardunah

    This is an interesting question as well, and I will answer it by saying that when the Great Mother and Father came to the world of SHARD with all of their many children in tow, they found many lifeforms already in existence upon the strange new world. Some of the lifeforms seemed similar to creatures they had encountered upon the original home world while others were incredibly unique. The Basic Compendium includes but a fraction of the actual life upon the incredibly diverse world of the false …

  • This is a great question and one which will be elaborated upon in much greater detail in the pages of the up and coming World Guide. However since you have brought this question to the forum I will answer offer as much information as I can with out spoiling the surprises contained within the next book. In the game of Shard assume that the major races, which I will call the Great Races.... Paksin, Vajrah, and Sarpah all tend to mate with in the many different related sub- species contained within…

  • Life as Valet

    griffin - - SHARD Combat

    Post

    The latest response is correct and indeed did highlight some of the major benefits to being a Sun born honor guard has versus a Trade caste valet. I would like to stress the importance of caste for just a moment by saying that there is a reason why it is listed as an advantage and as such must be purchased with valuable character points in order to possess. Consider that all sun born would be socially higher than any trade caste member and as such would receive subtle benefits which might not no…

  • Are Moles Blind?

    Hello there and thanks for this most excellent question. In all cases when we present animal templates they are given in broad and general terms to allow for changes to be made by Game masters or players themselves with the permission of the Game Master. In cases in which one finds that the guidelines laid out by the creators of this game do not match with the ideas one may have concerning a particular species of animal (usually after much research and investigation into the physical characteris…

    That is essentially correct.... I don't want to spoil any of our fiction for the up and coming World Guide but keep your eyes open for teasers on the forum and we will perhaps be able to deliver some tasty tidbits of the fiction to keep your interests high...

  • If you like this image just wait until you get the new book there are hours and hours of content to help fuel your imagination contained within its pages!

    First of all I would like to congratulate your sister on working so hard to get accepted into a college she likes.... So with respect to the title of teacher, you are correct, it is generally given to those of the Priest caste, however this does not mean that other professions cannot teach. The other professions may take apprentices and pass along the knowledge they have with respect to the skills they have mastered, which means that they can teach others in the fields they themselves have come …

    In our own games each player and by default the characters they tend to play have human weaknesses as well, whether it is an uncontrollable greed or a desire for more power or any list of other personality quirks.... I particularly love that this game encourages players to be less than perfect by awarding story points for Drawbacks in the game. These less than perfect habits and compulsions help make the game more interesting by producing characters which are more rounded and easy to relate to d…

  • Your art work is coming along nicely if I do say so myself.... It has served to motivate me to create some of my own! Thanks for all that you do!

  • Not only are the new book available it is overflowing with fantastic material which is sure to take any campaign to the next level... The Martial Arts fighting styles, along with the break down of the Magic Rituals... and the 90 new Animal Templates!!!!!! This is the stuff that epic games are made of!!!!

    Also another important thing to remember about the magic in Shard is that for every spell cast there is some sort of price which must be paid.... Some have discovered this fact too late, I say this to remind each user of the arcane, to exercise caution and wisdom when tampering with the magic of this world because it is full of uncertainties and a failed dice roll can be the herald of disaster...

    Having been around for the games with the fabled Talons of Kramah.... I can verify that some of each of their own personalities has survived in the secrets they left behind contained within the teachings and possibly the memories of the few students they found worthy enough to entrust with the gifts they themselves where blessed with from beyond the shining edges of heaven... I hope that the World Guide will give us more information about not only these epic heroes but the countless others who h…

    I completely agree with you... These two choices are most excellent. With respect to the choices you have shown I cannot decide which would be the most exciting to run... Let me know which one you choose., And when it comes to making them unique there is are a few simple ways to do it... You could choose one of the existing templates for a cat of similar size and transpose a few of the characteristic maximums (provided you have access to both our books and you made sure that the ones you choose …
